Needed a tripod, looked everywhere and then thought, hrm, I bet Newegg carries tripods! They did, and had the one I already wanted 25% cheaper than anywhere else online or at a brick and mortar.

Solid built

 

If you need tripod, don't waste any more time. This is the ONE. I like this better than Davis & Sanford TRAVLR Traveler Tripod (I bought two different models). But a carrying bag wouldn't hurt!!!!

Slik Quick Release Plate for U8000 - What A Deal

 

I had accidentally sent a camera in for repair and left my Silk U800 Quick Release Plate attached to the camera. Well as you can guess when the camera was returned after being repaired, the plate was missing. I went internet searching and there was...

Sturdy And Lightweight Quality That Comes Cheap!

 

From an amateur's point of view, purchasing a tripod is an essential step to getting started in the art of photography. A whole new set of images are possible because you can position the camera and wait for the action to come to you. As you become...

Lightweight enough to carry around on your back

Requires screwdriver for mounting camera to base

Solid, flexible, cheap, light tripod

 

The tripod works extremely well for my Canon Powershot digital camera. I have not tried it with other cameras, so cannot comment on its performance with heavier cameras. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light, solid tripod for a...

Excellent for todays lightweight cameras and camcorders

 

For the price point this upholds SLIK's reputation as a value conscious maker of tripods and accessories. I found this tripod to be well made for the price with excellent features. For today's modern digital cameras and camcorders this is just what the...

Lightweight and generally easy to operate. Compact so you take it along just in case.

Really not meant to support any significant off-denter weight without a ballast without possible tipping.

Very good Tripod for Small Cameras

 

If you need a handy tripod for small DC, this is the one. Very easy to use, very light to carry around. However, it only weights around 2.5 pounds, so it is not safe to be used for even smallest SLR in the current market. Other than that, I highly...

Well made, light, low price

Not for Heavy DC, like SLR
